This book chronicles the life of Keith Duckworth OBE, the remarkable engineer famous for being co-founder of Cosworth Engineering and creating the most successful F1 engine of all time, the DFV.
The Concise, Easy-to-Use Guide to Designing Chemical Process Equipment and Evaluating Its Performance Trends such as shale-gas resource development call for a deeper understanding of chemical engineering equipment and design. Chemical Process Equipment Design complements leading texts by providing concise, focused coverage of these topics, filling a major gap in...
Mesoscopic superconductors achieve a level of smallness that reveals the dominance of strange quantum effects. In a world driven by the miniaturization of electronic device technology, small superconductors acquire great relevance and timeliness for the development of ground breaking novel quantum devices.
Modelling and Mechanics of Carbon-based Nanostructured Materials sets out the principles of applied mathematical modeling in the topical area of nanotechnology. It is purposely designed to be self-contained, giving readers all the necessary modeling principles required for working with nanostructures. The unique physical properties observed at the nanoscale are often...
Provides an insight into the theory and practice of severe plastic deformation technology used to refine grain structure and improve properties of metallic materials. The only book to be entirely devoted to SPD processes/techniques. Written by a team of international experts.
